Baked Oatmeal is a warm, filling, wholesome breakfast. This fall-flavored version features tender apples, warm cinnamon, and sweet maple syrup for a cozy breakfast that’s sure to become a new favorite! It’s easy to make ahead of time and reheat on busy mornings!
Adjust the oven rack to the lower third position and preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9×9 inch or 11×7 inch baking pan with nonstick spray. Any similar size or shape pan works, though 8×8 inch would be too small.
Whisk all of the ingredients together in 1 large bowl. Pour into prepared baking pan. Top with nuts, if desired. (Or stir into the oatmeal.) Bake for 35 minutes or until the center appears *almost* set, which gives us a soft oatmeal. For drier and more solid baked oatmeal, bake until center has set. Cool for 5 minutes before serving. Spoon or slice and serve with yogurt, almond butter or maple syrup if desired. Cover leftovers tightly and refrigerate for up to 1 week.
